CARRY ON KEN
is a documentary tribute to the life and work of acclaimed
British film director Ken Loach. The film is part of Ken Loach's 70th
birthday celebrations and coincides with the release of his latest Palme
D'Or winning film, THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY. This documentary charts
his career and his working methods through film clips and interviews with
many of his collaborators including Robert Carlyle, Cillian Murphy, Brian
Cox, Ricky Tomlinson and Peter Mullan. It premiered on More4 on Sat 17th
June 2006 and is currently being broadcast in a number of European
countries.

Rebel County


Rebel County uses the shooting of the Ken Loach film The Wind that Shakes
the Barley as a springboard from which to explore the real life events of
The War of Independence in the South West of the country.

Rebel County features observational behind-the-scenes material of Ken Loach
interacting with cast and crew, key ambush scenes, Black & Tan raids, behind
the scenes historical discussions between Loach and cast members and
includes clips of the completed film. The documentary strikes a creative
and natural balance between the exploration of the film-making process and
the real stories from that period.

It uses some of the film’s key locations (Bandon, Buttevant and Clonakilty
in West Cork) as a way of exploring what it was like for the ordinary
inhabitants of Cork living through the traumatic events of the time. It
explores the origins of the War of Independence, tracing the influence of
1798 and family and parish connections on the revolutionary period. It also
explores the nature of society before independence and the influence of
garrison towns, the impact of World War I and the competing allegiances in
towns and villages like Bandon and Buttevant.
